    Can you define "partisan?"

    Calling someone an idiot for failing to figure out what a grade schooler can figure out at a few minutes in civics class is hardly "partisan."

    Unless you want to say that calling someone an idiot for not being able to do basic math is partisan. But then your definition of "partisan" frankly has no meaning.

    The key to this is "the mic was believed to be off". The rest is blather, bias and your hatred for anyone not seeing it "your way". Good luck with that, okay.

    Well I'm sorry for passing 5th grade and that I can figure out the obvious realities of a last term politician. I, however, am not sorry for treating people who didn't pass 5th grade and who can't figure out obvious **** like that as if they are incredibly stupid for the damn simple reason that they are incredibly stupid.

    My, my, you do get testy when someone doesn't buy what you're selling. My grandmother told me "cursing is the crutch of the conversational cripple", and what do you do? Name calling, besmirchment, etc., it must be a Libby thing.

    The President should have been up front about any future negotiations with Russia. Why whisper believing the mic is off, if you have nothing to hide? IMO, he had something to hide.

    Show me a fifth grader that know **** about politics. And only a fourth grader would believe a fifth grader knows anything. Have you ever been around any children, please tell you haven't.

    No, I get testy when complete and utter morons try to argue something other then the painfully obvious.

    Honestly, you shouldn't even be allowed to vote if you can't figure out a last term politician has more flexibility.

    I have no respect for dumb ass idiots who think they can talk about something they clearly do not understand.

    The President should have been up front about any future negotiations with Russia. Why whisper believing the mic is off, if you have nothing to hide? IMO, he had something to hide.
    Upfront to whom?

    You think he has something to hide for the simple reason you detest him. Not because of what he said which is something any 5th grader passing civics class could tell you.

    Big talk from someone with the vocabulary of a preschooler.

    Notice something here. Not a single one of you have even remotely attempted to refute my point here.

    American just throws insults, he doesn't even attempt to actually even acknowledge the point being made here.

    Re: Obama tells Medvedev he'll have 'more flexibility' after election

    Obama said something anyone with any grasp of international relations or US foreign policy knows on a very basic level, it is commonly spoken.

    As far as I could interpret it he basically told Medvedev 'please wait, I will call you'.

    As far as traditional political relations with Russia goes he did not come off as any pushover as far as 'liberal' presidents goes.

    A gaffe... the sky wont fall.
